Whatever happened to the edited for TV movies? I grew up watching Breakfast Club, Indiana Jones and other such movies, but all of the racy or violent parts were edited out.
Now, all of the movies like them (including Indiana Jones, Transformers, and basically every movie that boys want to see) are too scary, violent, or sexy for kids. And they don't edit them anymore. So my choice is to let my child watch something I don't believe is appropriate for them, or I can be the meanest mom in the world.
Needless to say, I'm the meanest mom in the world (although Bok Boy always says that the ogre's mom is the meanest, not me). What do you do? My son's friend gets to watch them all and then have nightmares. My son, well, he just gets to play with the toys and learn what he can from his friends.
My simple wish is that one of the 900 cable channels would make edited for TV shows, like we used to watch in the good ole days! It would help save my sanity (and I need every little bit that I can get!)
